Haiti's Potholes - and how I fell in one

Some people have good eyes and see nothing; they are blind. Others are blind but see more than most of us ever seem to see. Such was the man in this picture. Almost a modern day prophet you might say... More here.

Friends have asked for gory details about how I fell in a well during my last trip to Haiti in March. (Prior to that in January, I got my foot stuck in wet cement. So maybe there's a message here...or I'm just plain clumsy.) Well, maybe I'll give you the gore. Maybe not. You won't know for sure unless you read my recent article about Haiti's Potholes in Assist News Services.

You'll find much more than the now-overmilked story about my dramatic descent into the lower parts; you'll find out what God is doing and satanic strongholds are cramming the style of those seeking to do honest good in Haiti. But it's all good in the end. So be sure to read about it.

I've included some pix in this story as well as in the latest downloadable Orphans First update.

Hope you enjoy the article -- and the update. Let me know what you think. I appreciate your comments and your support for Orphans First.

Deep Wounds, Deep Healing

Read a fuller review of in my section in The San Diego Christian Perspectives Examiner.

In his book, Deep Wounds, Deep Healing, Dr. Charles H. Kraft addresses the profound struggles that have lurked deep in the psyche since early childhood causing the “inner child” to be dissociated from the adult and allowing the build-up of garbage which provides fodder for demon activity.

Demons attach themselves to junk—like rats in garbage. It’s essential to deal with the junk to weaken the demonic influence.
Christians can be troubled by demonic influence as much as anyone, but Kraft goes further and Christians can still be possessed—although his support for this theory could be shot down by a grasp of semantics. However you look at it, believers can be set free by the Holy Spirit but, seemingly, some people need the help of a counselor or professional who understands spiritual warfare to find freedom.

Kraft’s deep healing technique focuses on biblical principles and seeks to reconnect a person to their inner child to discover the cause of the wounds and to help them see Jesus was there all the time.

The book is not light reading, but enlightening. A great tool for those interested in understanding deep healing.
